Both Bloodstones and Slow Poison have attracted a wide readership on the Harper Collins Authonomy site, with Bloodstones reaching number one on the list in August.
Slow Poison is now climbing the ranks. Both books can be sampled on Amazon.
'From murder and mayhem on the streets of Amsterdam to the pastoral British countryside, the scent of sex and violence is never far away.
Slow Poison opens in Amsterdam just before the feast of Saint Nicholas in December in the mid 1980’s.
The brutal slaying of a British tourist and the subsequent arrest and imprisonment of a young football supporter sparks off an orgy of violence. But the killing is no random act. The boy is innocent. The real killer returns to England to begin the final chapter of an obsessive campaign of revenge spanning several decades.
The twisted acts of violence and vengeance are punctuated by the pages of a stolen diary written in the dark days of the second world war. The killer identifies with the unspeakable horrors of the death camp as he coldly wreaks revenge for a series of traumatic events that took place in the mid 1950s on a Gloucestershire council estate.
The story culminates in a bloody siege high in the snowbound Cotswold hills.'
(This book contains very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. )
'Death, lust and infidelity on a summer’s day. Lives will change forever in the idyllic Cotswold countryside deep in the heart of the Bloodstones.
Summer has arrived in a Cotswold village at the edge of the Severn Plain. Olivia Lowell is an unassuming person in her early fifties preparing for an exhibition of her watercolours in the local church during the village fete. Her newest work is a departure in style, an exorcism of her creative past. Her acute sense of detail coupled with her changing physical state alters her perception of her ordered life and the lives of those around her.
Her husband, Gerald, is involved with a young girl. Olivia suspects nothing at first, but is uneasy about the changes within her and in the changes she notices in Gerald. During the fete, a body is discovered in the woods above the village. With a murder investigation in progress, the village is in turmoil. Gerald is missing, and Olivia's world is turned upside down.
In the days following the murder, Olivia re-evaluates her safe and secure existence and discovers a person within herself of whom she had lost sight. '
